OUR MISSION: To improve the quality of life for residents through charitable giving and philanthropy to make a lasting and beneficial investment in the Dickinson Area. OUR VISION: Promote Philanthropy, receive and manage charitable gifts, invest in wide-ranging program that promote economic and social well-being of area residents.

Our role as committee members is to network with area service organizations and government, marketing the mission of the foundation, drawing gifts to the foundation, all with the goal to grow the permanent fund and make it a great resource for the community.

THREE FUNDS: Committee work is supported by these funds to which donors can give and help us in our mission to serve the community. 

ENDOWMENT: Is the primary fund, and Qualifies for 40% ND Tax Credit. (click on link for requirements) Roughly 4% of funds are put to work in the community used annually as "grants". 

Non-Endowment PROJECT Fund: Provides immediate granting, and funds for marketing launching events. Qualifies as a charitable gift if no benefit is given in return, but NOT for 40% ND income tax credit.

Non-Endowment – Endowment Fund: Allows for funding of local events from which net proceeds flow to endowment at year end. Qualifies for charitable gift as long as no benefit is given in return. Does not qualify for ND 40% income tax benefit.

NDCF is the support system with over 40 years providing comprehensive charitable services to ND. This includes donor gift planning, bequest planning, and fiduciary services such as accounting, audit and money management to and for individuals, company leaders, families, and non-profits. This allows local volunteer committees to focus on telling their story of their foundation impact through marketing, granting, and growing the fund.
